update: They say that memory is the first thing to go. They are correct. I must have been thinking of some other Seguin. The city is named for Juan Seguin and he did not die at the Alamo. He was the last messenger sent out of the Alamo. The Handbook of Texas has his entire history.
Deborah and I have the great pleasure of watching the granddaughter for a few days. Her parents are busy, and that gives us the perfect opportunity to
spoil have fun with her.
The challenges of parenting are many, but they can’t compare with the pleasures and adventures of grandparenting. We can spoil her, then take her home. What’s better than that? For today, there is nothing like an extremely high-energy four-year old cooped up in a house because of rain. It means Pop (that’s me) get to be the playmate. It’s a role I need practice with, but I’m learning.
The rest of the long, long, long, long, long story revolves around the fact that we are in Seguin, Texas for this baby sitting venture. We are turning this into a learning experience for the granddaughter and us.
Seguin is named for Jose’ Seguin, one of the Alamo heroes. A quick look on the Internet shows a park and statue dedicated to Jose’. A large park with lots of running and screaming will help, and the granddaughter will probably have fun too.
And what’s a visit to Seguin without the camera. I plan to deliver pictures tomorrow. Here’s hoping the rain eases up.
